This week’s Water Cooler features QCS writers Mike Bundt, John Snyder, Mike Straw, Ryan Talbot and Brandon Hess.
Mike Bundt: What’s up everybody! Not the best result for the Bills over the weekend but I think we can all agree that we saw some progress out of the team. With the game in Ryan Fitzpatrick’s hands, Buffalo just couldn’t finish the game off.
Should Bills fans be disappointed with the Bills inability to close out Sunday’s contest?
John Snyder: Very. And not so much about the result, rather the inability for anyone other than a rookie from North Carolina to take any blame for another disappointing finish. They should have won the game, plain and simple, and they gave it away.
Ryan Talbot: Very disappointed. The team had to overcome poor officiating and they once again came so close. However, in true Bills fashion, they fell short once again. At some point the Bills need to turn the corner and win these games.
Mike Bundt: Obviously, Bills fans should be disappointed with th...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Buffalo Bills have announced that running back Fred
Jackson will not play during the team’s Thursday night contest against the
Miami Dolphins, reports Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com.
“It looks like Fred will be
out this week,” said Bills coach Chan Gailey. “The tests this morning were not
as good as we had hoped and he had hoped so he won’t play this week.”
GIVING HIM SOME LIP
Yes, yes he did. As the postgame interview with C.J. Spiller was wrapping up, Irvin was congratulating him and saying his goodbyes. Then for some reason, the hung and handshake weren’t enough. Irvin thought it appropriate to go in for the double kiss. By the way, the Bills won 19-14 and are now in second place in the AFC East. Filed under: Football, NFL, Video
Jerod Mayo fined $10,000 for hit on CJ Spiller. Brandon Spikes fined $25,000 for hit on Fitzpatrick.— Nick Underhill (@Nick_Underhill) November 16, 2012How stupid. Fitzpatrick was the one that caused Spikes to hit him in the head by tilting his head down. I've ranted enough on this. See below:Why I think Bills fans and players are hypocritesHow people are rushing to judgement on Spikes

CJ Spiller is having a ridiculous year. He leads all eligible running backs in YPC by a yard and a half over Adrian Peterson, who is 2nd. Spiller is at 7.3. Peterson is at 5.8 He’s at 4.3 yards per carry after contact, which is about an average total yards per carry. Doug Martin is next at 3.7. He ranks 14th in the league in rushing yards despite...
Tonight was supposed to be a coming out party of sorts for C.J. Spiller. Many in the fantasy community were expecting 30 carries for 500 yards, 20 touchdowns, a signed autograph from Justin Bieber (why, fantasy community, why?) and for him to save burning orphans from space aliens…give or take. Truthfully, I used to be a part of the Spiller fanclub and rooted for him harder...
As the Buffalo Bills held onto beat the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football, Bills running back C.J. Spiller was the star of the game with 91 total rushing yards.
During the NFL Network postgame, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michel Irvin was saying for goodbyes to CJ and well, this is what happened:

Forget the teases, it is Know your enemy with PhinsPhocus.
1) If you were the Bills' defensive or offensive coordinator, how would you attack the Dolphins?
CJ Spiller, CJ Spiller then some more CJ Spiller. He is a special player and needs to get the ball (Editor's note: Tell that to Chan). Dolphins also tend to struggle against Tight ends so I would try and get Scott...
Being realistic, the Buffalo Bills are done for the year. At 3-6 it’d take quite a turnaround to even compete for a Wildcard spot.
The Bills do face a weaker schedule for the next seven weeks, but to realistically compete they’d need to run the table.
Heading into Week 10, here are our True or False standings. In parentheses are last week’s records.

It was either really good defense or really bad defense for the New England Patriots this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills- that’s for sure. At times, it seemed as if the Pats were able to get adequate pressure on Ryan Fitzpatrick, but the entire second half seemed as if he was getting plenty of time, and the running backs had plenty of running room to make their moves.
What did we learn about Buffalo Bills fans when it comes to playing on national TV at 8:30 on a Thursday night? They’re going to get stupid drunk, wear Zubaz, light cars on fire, die in a creek and fight each other.
And you wonder why, besides sucking for 15 years, the team can’t get a game on primetime TV. The less drinking time for these idiots, the better off they’ll be...
Mired in their longest slide of the season, perhaps the last thing the Buffalo Bills need is to be without one of their top players while trying to end their recent struggles against the Miami Dolphins.
Minus running back Fred Jackson, the Bills look to snap a three-game skid Thursday night against the visiting Dolphins, who will try to avoid a third straight defeat.
In a crucial divisional bout where neither team can afford a loss, Thursday's primetime matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins shouldn't disappoint. While Miami is looking to snap a two-game losing streak and rebound from an embarrassing loss at home against Tennessee, the Bills are home for only the second time in six games in trying to right the ship....
Your hopes and dreams are coming near a conclusion. Are you a fantasy football playoff team? Are you a spoiler? Do you really have no idea what you are?
The Buffalo Billswill play without Fred Jackson against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night after the running back suffered a concussion in the final minutes of Sunday's 37-31 loss to the New England Patriots.
More than a few Bills players are fuming over the play on which Jackson was injured, specifically the extracarricular antics of Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes, who...
If you read Grantland, you would have come across an interesting piece on the Bills that was equal parts inspiring, depressing and gut wrenching. Among the many topics that the story covers is how Buffalo’s youth is moving away from their affiliation with the Bills and rooting for other NFL teams.
That will happen with 12 years of no playoffs and beyond mediocre teams.
